Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were promised 'Saturday Night at The Odeon Cocktail Experience' with guest DJ's and live saxophone players together with well dressed partying and dancing people ... The Odeon turned on a tv and displayed Eurovision Song Contest. Absolutely horrible as this were to be the...highlight of our get-away weekend in Dublin. Stay away from The Odeon and enjoy everything else of wonderful Dublin, Ireland.More

Met friends here on Friday night for a chat and a few drinks. This is a lovely looking place with friendly helpful staff. It's comfortable, relaxing and convenient. We would be very happy to go back.

The Odeon is a funky place with lots of bling. Great room upstairs for a staff event of about 60 people. Great service and plenty of food.

We went for the valentines menu, arrived and shown to our table. That’s probably the most efficient experience of the night. After ordering we waited 25 minutes for our starter and one hour twenty minutes for our main course. During that time on 4 occasions...the wrong meals arrived at our table. At one point I considered if the staff had visual impairments, customers were literally waving at them to order and enquire when food would arrive. I walked around the restaurant twice to talk to a manager and staff to see what was going on. t was completely disrespectful what happened in fact it felt like a scam to extort money from customers. It was not only us that experienced this each table around us were in the same position. To complete the experience the food was average at best.More

We had time before dinner reservations at a nearby restaurant and we stopped for drinks. They quickly found seating for 14 people and efficiently took our order.

Will NEVER step foot in the place again. Had a large event here a few weeks back where we had a tab that ran into several thousands of Euros, and settled the bill at the end of the night. When settling the bill I spotted...that a random BBQ area usage fee was added in which I had never been told about during the planning stage, and which I subsequently negotiated out. So I settled the bill, but forgot at the time that we had paid a €500 deposit, so €500 should have been wiped off the bill. The manager neglected to tell me at the time (I’m not sure if he knew or not at that point, as it was 2am. I realised afterwards and contacted him to say we had ultimately overpaid by €500. They won’t give us back the after weeks of trying. Do not trust these people for any event and overall stay clear. Shame as in theory it’s a great venue, but I’ll never step foot in the place again and have informed my entire network not to use it for any events, as they will try and rip you off.More

The building is very old and not particularly wheelchair friendly. I was a little worried that I was not going to be able to enjoy the night with my friends. The staff took out a metal ramp to get me into the building. It was...an adventure trying to get across the crowded bar to the bathroom. Once there I was pleasantly surprised at how spacious it was. The decor was quirky and colourful. It was a busy Friday night with lots of people in the bar, yet the seating we had booked felt so cosy. The service was fast and efficient. The food was so flavourful and the DJ had good tunes I enjoyed the colourful disco lights!!! From the staff member who met us at the door to guide us to the party, to the staff members who sorted out the ramp and the bar staff who brought us food and drinks, every single staff member was so friendly and helpful and really went out of their way to make this a memorable night. I am so thankful to you all and can’t wait to return :) ps To the manager of the odeon, I hope you are proud of your staff they really are a credit to you and they all deserve customer service awardsMore

We arrived at 19:45 but it wasn't until 22:00, nearly two and a half hours latter that our order finally arrived. The watering staff were nice, especially the guy at the bar who did get us complimentary drinks as an apology, and it wasn't their...fault obviously. They seemed very stressed and absolutely bewildered by the situation. There was clearly an issue in the kitchen as everyone else sitting near us was was waiting just as long. I wish however that there was more communication as we missed several buses home amd what should have been a nice evening, turned into quite the ordeal. By the time the food arrived, it was lukewarm, burnt and very greasy. Probably wouldn't go again. DavidMore

We booked the bar upstairs for a big celebration. Guests, aged from 12 to 95, came and went throughout the evening. There was singing alongside the grand piano, chatting, eating finger good, cups of tea and sandwiches and drinking and then dancing until 2.45am. Kelly...and Laura ensured the pre-planning was thorough and the team was well briefed on the night.The staff, including Marco, Chips, Luke, Pappi and floor and door staff couldn't have been more helpful in looking after us and their kindness and assistance to our guests of all ages and abilities was hugely appreciated. Thank you for helping us organise such a memorable gathering.More

I decided to celebrate my birthday at The Odeon because I've been there in a corporate event and I really like the place, the atmosphere is just amazing, staff are all very friendly, and to be honest, there is no better place in my opinion....I called to make a reservation and I spoke to Laura, she was so professional and easy going, just took my reservation with no hassle, even tho it was for 22 people, she asked me where I would like to be seated with my guests, she was just superb. On the the reservation date, I was running late, and I called the restaurant to inform that I would be 15-20 minutes late, the guy who picked the phone (can't remember his name) was very polite and confirmed that my reservation would be held, that gave me a peace of mind as I was afraid to miss my reservation. When I get in the venue, the host was waiting and asked my name and drove me to the space they reserved to me and it could not be better, space for everyone to seat... They allowed me to bring a cake as it was my birthday, when I was there, Trinity she just came up asking me if I would like to store the cake in the fridge as it would take a while to eat it, she was very very very polite and efficient, every 20 minutes or so, she walked my guests asking myself and them if everything was okay, if they needed anything else (She just went beyond) Around 9:30pm Trinity came asking me if I would like her to bring the cake and we agreed that she could do it at 10pm and at 10pm the cake was there, she also provided the right number of cutlery and napkin even no one asking her to do that, I have no words to thank not only her but all staffs whom made my birthday memorable, my guests loved the place, service and food. I wish I could give a thousand stars to the restaurant and it's staffs, I have absolutely nothing to complain about that moment on Saturday night, thanks all, thanks Trinity for making my birthday so special.More
